Take a look at Hull’s fabulous four-star hotel which has a stunning rooftop bar.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hull, based in Ferensway, is now open and welcoming guests to its 165 bedrooms.
Undoubtedly, one of the hotel’s best features is its rooftop bar, which offers great views over Hull city centre.

Those who want to visit the Lexington go to the hotel’s reception area and travel up a lift specifically for the new bar. You’ll then be met by members of the Lexington Ladies bar team.
There you can enjoy a range of cocktails, beers and spirits as well as coffees and soft drinks. On the menu, there are specifically Hull-themed cocktails such as Humber Mist and View from The Fourth.

The Lexington, which opens between 9am and 1am daily, has a VIP seating area and will be hosting a New Year’s Eve party with a DJ. From January, it will also have a resident DJ.
